There is nothing better than receiving something in the mail, just because. When it isn’t your birthday, a holiday or an announcement about someone’s new house/baby/wedding/etc.
And it is even better when it is from your 94 year old grandfather and has giraffes on it. Thanks for the
snail giraffe mail Grandpa!
New York City is often referred to as an Urban Jungle; however, this weekend we had the opportunity to visit the real Urban Jungle, the Bronx Zoo!
For Christmas this past year, Matt and I gave his younger sister a trip to NYC. At the time it was probably a let down. I mean, I would definitely rather get some new clothes than I lame book filled with IOUs. But hopefully, after a weekend jammed packed with fun (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, Burgers at Shake Shack, the zoo, etc) the wait seemed worth it.
The Bronx Zoo was definitely the highlight of the weekend for me. Seeing all of the animals up close was truly magical. Of course seeing the giraffes was my favorite, but I think that seeing the gorillas was a very close second.
I am sure there are people out there who will argue that zoos are inhuman and what not. I’m not knowledgable enough to fight that fight. So I will leave that to PETA.
Thanks to my sister, my morning coffee just got a whole lot more fun!
